230 – Bronchial Stent

Aneumatosis of the right inferior lobe with evolution to atelectasis due to a carcinoma that occludes its bronchus.

The fissure in this lobe will move towards the vertebral column during collapse.

231 - Conical Stent

The indication of stents in distal or lobar bronchi was controversial (Journal of Bronchology & Interventional Pulmonology 24: 3; 211-215.2017).

Here from the inside of a prosthesis in the intermediate bronchus a small cone-shaped stent implanted after resection of the tumor and allowing the re-expansion of the right lower lobe is observed.
